"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

I Think I May, I Think I Might…

I’m curious to see how Steinbrenner’s death will be covered during the All-Star Game tonight. I’m sure the announcers will talk about it and perhaps a mention of the Boss will be included in the pre-game ceremonies. Should be interesting. No Mariano for the American Leaguers. But I don’t think it’s going to come to that. Says here that the Nationals will get off the schnied and win in hand, 7-3 or maybe worse. All the same, I’ll be pulling for the Junior Circut.

Go git ‘em, boys. Dare to be a Special.

Diggin the YES coverage of George's passing. Sterling was on with Kay and he does a great Steinbrenner. That's one thing that's coming up for me today, how funny George was, to laugh at, and sometimes with.

Reggie hasn't talked to any assembled media because he's still too distraught. There have been some candid reactions from former Yankees tonight and in this day and age of the canned quote and the speedy quick tweet, Reggie might just have one more great performance left. Man, I hope they just let the cameras roll and the dude spills his guts out. Hard not to imagine Ray Negron being close by...

3 RagingTartabull   ~  Jul 13, 2010 8:16 pm

I was gonna say, I really would have liked a Ray Negron react today. Talk about a guy who saw EVERY side of George...

4 RagingTartabull   ~  Jul 13, 2010 8:18 pm

I'm hoping/predicting Jeter does something memorable tonight

5 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 13, 2010 8:27 pm

Yeah, that would be great. Or A Rod hitting a Joe Morgan Big Fly.

6 Alex Belth   ~  Jul 13, 2010 8:29 pm

I appreciate the efforts of those being honored but this Glee singing is BRU-tale.

7 Diane Firstman   ~  Jul 13, 2010 8:35 pm

I went to a baseball game, and an "Up With People" performance broke out.

8 RagingTartabull   ~  Jul 13, 2010 8:35 pm

wow Joe and Jeter a little emotional

9 Just Fair   ~  Jul 13, 2010 8:39 pm

Hey, kids. Game's about to start. Now brush your teeth and get ready for bed. : (
[6] Glad to say I've never seen that singer before.

Jamie Moyer is jealous.

12 RagingTartabull   ~  Jul 13, 2010 8:44 pm

are we really gonna have an exhibition game end at something like 2 am EST??

13 monkeypants   ~  Jul 13, 2010 8:44 pm

Is it me or the general mood or what, but the Nick Apollo album cover photo reminds me a lot of a younger Steinbrenner.

14 monkeypants   ~  Jul 13, 2010 8:45 pm

12) well, "it counts"' remember.

15 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  Jul 13, 2010 8:58 pm

Just got a text saying "Ichiro is dynamite"...why? don't have Gameday open yet..what happend?

16 Just Fair   ~  Jul 13, 2010 8:58 pm

Hit one out, Captain!

17 RagingTartabull   ~  Jul 13, 2010 8:58 pm

that was cool...other than the amateurs in Anaheim stepping on it

18 RagingTartabull   ~  Jul 13, 2010 8:59 pm

haha the News tracked down Howie Spira for a quote, lets just say he hasn't moved on

19 Sliced Bread   ~  Jul 13, 2010 9:00 pm

Just turned on the game and zipped through the introductions. Fuggin' Angels fans booing every Yankee. Go fuck a rally monkey, you mindless twats. That's the home team you're booing, dipshits. Save it for the playoffs, if you can manage to get there, morons.

20 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Jul 13, 2010 9:01 pm

Evening, Team.
So, the All-Star Game...

21 RagingTartabull   ~  Jul 13, 2010 9:07 pm

Robbie having a Dan Uggla kinda night here

22 Just Fair   ~  Jul 13, 2010 9:07 pm

Bleh, Shoulda had that one, Robbie.

23 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Jul 13, 2010 9:08 pm

That's not a hit. Robbie makes that play in his sleep.

24 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Jul 13, 2010 9:09 pm

There you go, Robbie!

25 Just Fair   ~  Jul 13, 2010 9:09 pm

[21] Uggla that. : )

26 OldYanksFan   ~  Jul 13, 2010 9:11 pm

Robbie a bit nervous tonight?

27 RagingTartabull   ~  Jul 13, 2010 9:13 pm

Anaheim is one of the herbiest (yeah thats right) fanbases in the league. its rivaled only by Tampa

28 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  Jul 13, 2010 9:15 pm

[27] Tampa??!! Is it medicinal there??

29 RagingTartabull   ~  Jul 13, 2010 9:16 pm

[28] it would explain the cowbells

30 Just Fair   ~  Jul 13, 2010 9:16 pm

[27] Have you been to Colorado lately?

31 RagingTartabull   ~  Jul 13, 2010 9:16 pm

tater time Robbie

32 RagingTartabull   ~  Jul 13, 2010 9:19 pm

Andy coming out for the 3rd!

33 RagingTartabull   ~  Jul 13, 2010 9:19 pm

and yes I'm a geek that gets excited to see Yankees in the ASG, what can I say?

34 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Jul 13, 2010 9:20 pm

Andy!!

35 RagingTartabull   ~  Jul 13, 2010 9:21 pm

Shut UP about the "core four," PLEASE!

38 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  Jul 13, 2010 9:22 pm

Very enticing picture on Gameday for Hart-san...

39 RagingTartabull   ~  Jul 13, 2010 9:22 pm

thats right son

40 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Jul 13, 2010 9:23 pm

Andy looking nasty!

41 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Jul 13, 2010 9:24 pm

Nice inning, Andy!

42 Just Fair   ~  Jul 13, 2010 9:24 pm

Pettitte to Hanley to Jeter to Cano. : )

43 RagingTartabull   ~  Jul 13, 2010 9:31 pm

this is pretty cool, wfan.com has posted Suzyn Waldman's interview with George from 3/1/93 (his return from suspension) and the sitdown with Yogi from '99. I mean say what you will about Suzyn, but these should be fun to give a listen to.

44 Just Fair   ~  Jul 13, 2010 9:38 pm

If this game started at 7 eastern or so it would be over by now.

45 RagingTartabull   ~  Jul 13, 2010 9:41 pm

oh man this '93 interview is full of Tartabully goodness!!

46 seamus   ~  Jul 13, 2010 9:54 pm

and pinch hitting!

47 Chyll Will   ~  Jul 13, 2010 10:06 pm

Doesn't look like some guys brought their 'A" game, huh?

48 Just Fair   ~  Jul 13, 2010 10:07 pm

Yay, Robbie!

49 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Jul 13, 2010 10:08 pm

That's our Robbie!

50 RagingTartabull   ~  Jul 13, 2010 10:08 pm

Robbie for MVP!!

51 seamus   ~  Jul 13, 2010 10:08 pm

good piece of hitting for robbie. I was thinking he'd have to go the other way with it.

52 Chyll Will   ~  Jul 13, 2010 10:08 pm

But it will be nice if it turns out Robbie drives in the winning run.

53 Chyll Will   ~  Jul 13, 2010 10:28 pm

(cricket, cricket...)

54 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  Jul 13, 2010 10:36 pm

[53] This time it counts! Everyone too tense for game thread!

55 Chyll Will   ~  Jul 13, 2010 10:38 pm

[54] That has to be it. I thought somebody yelled "CHOI!" or something...

56 thelarmis   ~  Jul 13, 2010 10:40 pm

the one time i root for that fat fucking liar to do well, he does what i always hope he does, except for this one a-b...

just getting in. looks like a pitchers duel...

57 RagingTartabull   ~  Jul 13, 2010 10:41 pm

Huuuuuughes

58 thelarmis   ~  Jul 13, 2010 10:41 pm

[55] hee sop?! ; )

59 thelarmis   ~  Jul 13, 2010 10:43 pm

hughes!

60 Chyll Will   ~  Jul 13, 2010 10:47 pm

[58] Yeah, yunnow... good times >;)

I will say this for Ol' George: he did charity right most of the time. Nobody knew a damn thing about it unless the recipient told on him. Classic antihero stuff.

61 RagingTartabull   ~  Jul 13, 2010 10:48 pm

oh no, really Hughes??

62 Just Fair   ~  Jul 13, 2010 10:48 pm

Whenever I hear "great baserunner" I always think Scott Rolen. Give me a fucking break.

63 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  Jul 13, 2010 10:50 pm

[62] Timmah announcing the game??!

64 Just Fair   ~  Jul 13, 2010 10:51 pm

Girardi's in bullpen roulette heaven tonight. : )

65 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Jul 13, 2010 10:51 pm

[62] hahahahah! No fucking kidding!

66 thelarmis   ~  Jul 13, 2010 10:51 pm

good. now, 1 more, get outta this...

67 Chyll Will   ~  Jul 13, 2010 10:56 pm

I guess Hughes is no longer an eighth inning-type guy, huh?

68 thelarmis   ~  Jul 13, 2010 10:57 pm

oh, fuck. i'm not surprised. i see mccann do that all the time here.

i guess 2 of those runs are on hughes's ledger. damn.

69 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  Jul 13, 2010 10:58 pm

Game 7 in Shea, er..Citi Field now?

oh well..grub time. A-Rod off the becnh for a tater in the 9th!

70 Chyll Will   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:00 pm

Okay, I've really had enough of Timmeh. G'nite, all. (and I thought, "hey, why not drop in on this game thread?")

71 Chyll Will   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:07 pm

zzzZZ Who?? ZZzzz

72 thelarmis   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:09 pm

phil hughes' all-star game era is not nearly as pretty as the hottie that sang 'god bless hot blonde women...'

54.00 vs. absolute goddess

; )

73 thelarmis   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:10 pm

here's swish!

74 thelarmis   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:11 pm

[71] i think she's a pop country singer. the girl that sings in the band of that style i play in, likes her. i think i heard one song and she was really good. she's certainly SEXY!!! ; )

75 thelarmis   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:12 pm

oh, poor swish. 4 homers in the derby and a pinch hit strike out in the 7th...

76 thelarmis   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:12 pm

matt holliday catching flies in LA...

77 RagingTartabull   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:13 pm

oh matthew...

78 thelarmis   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:13 pm

HOW is that a double??? in and out of his glove. ERROR!!!

[not that it matters...]

79 thelarmis   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:15 pm

good. a lil' rally...

[ooh, no fucking monkey, please...]

80 Just Fair   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:18 pm

We want Alex in the 9th!

81 bags   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:22 pm

Did McCarver just say that Wainwright has won all his games at home because the mound is the same height for every home game? Seems like he's forgetting the fact that the water fountains in the home clubhouse are always the same height also. That's definitely a major contributing factor as well. I always thought McCarver was good at this announcing thing, but now i feel totally let down. Bummer.

82 thelarmis   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:28 pm

those cleats are very...orange...

83 thelarmis   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:30 pm

rolen's got a gun

84 Evil Empire   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:44 pm

we're going to regret this night come october. It's gotta be Arod.

85 Evil Empire   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:45 pm

True Yankee Arod will go yard for the Boss if they play him. It always comes down to Arod!

86 seamus   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:46 pm

we're not going to see arod i fear. hopefully we do though...

87 Evil Empire   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:46 pm

[76] or not catching them

88 Evil Empire   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:48 pm

Nice baserunning by Pig Sloppy

89 thelarmis   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:48 pm

[87] yeah. i was referring back to the playoff game vs. the dodgers when he dropped the ball!

oh, FUCK YOU, fat liar!!! goddamn cocksucker.

90 Evil Empire   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:48 pm

[86] It's just got to be now. A-Rod...clap clap clap clap clap ....A-Rod!

91 thelarmis   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:49 pm

wtf?

where's a-rod?!

92 Evil Empire   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:49 pm

[89] Oh I know!

93 seamus   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:49 pm

i can't believe that girardi just let the NL win without even playing arod.

94 thelarmis   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:49 pm

motherfucker.

a-rod for the tie...

i don't get it... insanity.

95 Just Fair   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:50 pm

Fire Giradi! ; )

96 Mattpat11   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:52 pm

Well, we'll just have to win without homefield this year

97 JeremyM   ~  Jul 13, 2010 11:54 pm

I have to say I was pretty peeved that A-Rod didn't get into the game. When Buck's hit dropped, I thought for sure A-Rod was going to come in and hit a three-run walk-off. Guess it wasn't to be.

98 Mattpat11   ~  Jul 14, 2010 12:08 am

I'm told the change in my facial expression between the ball falling and the realization that Ortiz was running was quite comical

99 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  Jul 14, 2010 12:35 am

[98] I would pay $5 to watch a replay of that transformation..perhaps similar to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-E1NfmSWxU
